Late to the 2008 Goudey Party

Earlier in the year, I bought a blaster and a few packs of 2008 Goudey and liked them very much, especially the retired players like Richie Ashburn and Catfish Hunter. I have been trying to save money as of late (my wife and I are going to Europe this summer!), but I couldn't resist the lure of $11 blasters at the local K-Mart. I bought 1 and got about 50 cards that I didn't have and a few fun inserts and SP's. I thought that with one more blaster I might be able to get a few cards closer to a complete base set. Well, a FEW is exactly how many closer I got! Well, here's to trying to go after a previous year's set while everybody else is going nutty over this year's new models.

I do have a knack for pulling good inserts of non-baseball players though. These are up for trade for anyone who is building the WHOLE set. My "baseball only" want list is to the right.

(With a scanner on loan, I hope to get back into the blogging world. Baseball season is on the horizon! Is it OK that I'm not that excited about the Livan Hernandez on the Mets?)

UPDATE: Hit Parade Gretzky is heading out to Big Nacho!
UPDATE 2: Royalty Kobe to Slette!

I don't think too many people are excited about the Livan Hernandez signing... I know I'm not.

Livan seems excited anyway. He thinks he can win 15 games this year.

I'm trying to build the whole set - my need list is at:

I can probably help you out with the base cards...

I am excited he is on the Mets! That means the Reds will not have to pay for him when he breaks down.

Hearing about Livan, I recall saying, in the most deflated imaginable voice, "uh.oh."

I'd gladly trade you my extra Chipper Jones SR for the Kobe SR. If you're interested, you can email me at epslette AT hotmail DOT com!
